"Violet is an everyday
color that manages
to catch you
She was there all along, and she always slipped by. She was just another person to some; another name, another face.
She just slipped in, and now her words and actions, her being, occupy my thoughts.
She made me think in a new way. I began to see things in a new light.
She introduced me to new things: sights, sounds, words, flavors, ideas. I wanted these things more and more.
I wanted to be like her, to have her like me.
New feelings came from the ways she changed me. A desire to think, to know, to question, to grow.
Love. I love her, the forbidden ways desire creeps in. The things we can't have.
She isn't an "everyday color", she is the color I want everyday. The color my world is painted.
